Broadcast 828 (Special Edition)

Patrick Beatty and David Shiga were the guests for this program originating from Grand Forks, ND and focusing on X Prize Cup and David's "breaking news" interview at Bigelow Aerospace. Please note that this program has audio distortion and problems that cannot be cleared. The audio issues stem from the studio I used in Grand Forks and the fact that Patrick had to use a less than adequate public telephone for the interview. I apologize for these problems and assure all listeners that The Space Show is taking steps to deal with phone line quality issues.

In addition to the introduction to this special program, there are five separate interview tracks/panel discussions. They run continuously for about 2.5 hours without a break. However, you will know when each interview ends as the guest or the panel is appropriately thanked and the next guest or panel is introduced.
